Japan unimpressed with May's Brexit but 'too polite' to say so

04 Septembre 2017

May announced that China must do "everything it can" to make North Korea refrain from firing more missiles, and refused to rule out cyber warfare.

'They have leverage on North Korea, and I believe we should be encouraging China to exercise that leverage'.

"The actions of North Korea are illegal, they are significant actions of provocation, it's outrageous, that's why we will be redoubling our efforts with our global partners to put pressure on North Korea to stop these illegal activities".

"We condemn North Korea in the strongest words possible for a reckless act which was a clear violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions", May told a press briefing during an official visit to Japan.

"The actions of North Korea are illegal, they are significant actions of provocation, it's outrageous, that's why we will be redoubling our efforts with our worldwide partners to put pressure on North Korea to stop these illegal activities". These are illegal tests that they have carried out, and they should stop these.

May, who said on Wednesday that China was "the key" to global pressure on North Korea, told a press conference alongside Japan's prime minister, Shinzo Abe, that action was required.

She, however, dodged questions when asked whether the United Kingdom would commit troops to deter them, and declined to specify any red lines for North Korea.

British Prime Minister Theresa May sought to reassure Japanese business leaders about Brexit on Thursday, while also joining Japan in calling on China to use its influence to pressure North Korea to halt its nuclear weapons and missile development. Kim Jong Un's regime first threatened to attack the USA island territory after President Donald Trump threatened to respond to North Korea's threats with "fire and fury". "And we see that the best way of doing is for China to be bringing pressure to bear on North Korea".

North Korea has said that Tuesday's missile test was a direct response to the annual drills, calling it "a part of the muscle-flexing" against the war games. May arrived in Japan Wednesday with an eye to soothing Brexit fears and pushing ahead on early free-trade talks with the world's number three economy. Among them, automakers Toyota and Nissan have factories in Britain.
